I found the sentence when I was reading THE POWER OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND. I strained my eyes hard in an effort to get the good grasp of the sentence. Before the thinking faculty of my mind could explain the sentence, I had another second thought – “how about skipping?” Well, honestly, I couldn’t do so. I just quelled the growing aversion and backtracked to decipher its meaning.
And here’s what the visual study of the sentence bred the sense:
What is inertia?
In the simplest defined terminology, Inertia is being unresponsive either physically or mentally to a thing. To be more precise, it’s synonymous to one’s laziness or indolence. However, the science of physics defines inertia of a moving or still objects as its status-quo. Means, if the object is moving or static, it remains so until the application of an external force transpires a remarkable transition in its status.
Physical inertia, then, is the laziness or indolence of a person.
Now, ‘physical inertia favors mental passivity’, as the way I concur, results to be an implication that people are typically averse to indulging into a mental activity unless spurred by certain physical responses/impulses, instinctively or normally. These physical responses are the manifestation of the mental activity and the antithesis of the same manifests as mental passivity. So to say, our mind works normal or better based on the vibes derivative of the physical activities. It doesn’t function or slips into the comatose in the absence of physical activity.
Relationship with writing
I am a writer. Most of the times, I have noticed the attenuating sense of enthusiasm for my writing. On deeper analysis, I found it was the outcome of my physical inertia. Many a time, despite believing that writing is really a very serious chore requiring regular and constant practice to reach at perfection, I fail to responsibly adhere to such a conditional indulgence.
Well, the mental passivity. However, that’s not the single reason to be the outcome of the mental passivity. In fact, writer’s block syndrome is also one of the factors contributing mental passivity for writing.
The remedial solution to mental passivity lies in the fact of spurring physical activities in certain manifestations – either indulging into the things of your interest or training the mind to be a commanding officer of your bodily organs (responsible to functionalize the entire organic machineries). For instance, if you are a writer who do not practice to be more amenable to the inward call, there transpires in your sense organs the occasional apathy for writing.
It becomes firmly entrenched if the tendency remains unchangeable for long.
That’s the all of it. Hope, you’d love interpretation of the thought.
